s you know, one of the biggest considerations you’re faced with when it comes to choosing a rental is your choice of location. Unlike furniture, paint and decor, it’s the one thing that you cannot change, so it’s important to choose well. What are the critical things to consider when choosing a location? There are so many personal variables it’s really up to you to decide. As an example, if it is just as important to you to be close to your children’s school as it is to your place of work, then look for a place that offers you the best of both worlds. If you own a car and want to use public transportation whenever possible to save on parking and gas costs, a well-connected mass transit location may be a better option for you. If you’re a walker, close proximity to major amenities should be a definite consideration. Doing errands such as grocery shopping and banking on foot has many health benefits and gives you a chance to meet your neighbours and discover new places too. Don’t let the cost of rent solely dictate your choice of location. Make a list of your priorities first, and then take the time to assess each location for its merits and weigh your options.

hat’s your motivation? Do you need more space - or less of it? A new lifestyle? A new job? A change in your family or relationship status necessitating a new apartment? Then embrace the opportunity, go out and find that perfect new place to call home. Sometimes, even though life has changed and a new apartment is necessary, moving can feel too overwhelming or inconvenient to take on the challenge and make the effort. While there isn’t an honest person alive that will tell you moving is easy or effortless, you can minimize the impact, stress and headaches by planning it out carefully. The first step is deciding what you want. Get a few points down on paper, such as: location, size, necessary amenities and budget. Be realistic and know the difference between your ideal and the market reality. Start looking. Look in advance so you get a feel for what the market has to offer. If you like something, put your name on the wait list. Get your finances in order and your references in check. Start streamlining your possessions. If you’re moving with children you’ll have to get their stuff in order too. If you start getting your move in order well before you actually give your notice and sign your lease there will be much less to do once the 60-day countdown is on. With this in mind, you’re ready for a winter move, and we’re here to help. Our magazine and website, TheRentersGuide.ca, offer the best selection of apartments, informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

Does it get better than Bay Street?

D

owntown Toronto is a hot commodity – it’s so convenient, so cosmopolitan, so alive! You can’t get much more urban than the heart of it all: Bay Street. Morguard’s stylish and upscale community, The Bay Club, offers an ideal home to enjoy it all. Located at 925 Bay Street, The Bay Club is situated on one of the city’s most prime pieces of real estate. At the corner of Bay and Wellesley, it’s a perfect combination of live-work-play. With the swank Yorkville just steps to the north for the style mavens, the financial district to the south for the business savvy, the grouping some of the country’s finest hospitals for those in the medical field just west, plus college and university campuses throughout the area, The Bay Club cuts out the commute. On a nice day it’s a short walk to work, though any jaunt is a quick cab ride away. With the subways running north and south along both Yonge St. and University Ave., as well as the east/west subway along Bloor, public transit is at your doorstep and ready to speed you across to all parts of the city. The elegant 32-storey building is quite new, both the interiors and exteriors exude contemporary style and polish. The welcoming lobby features a friendly security professional at the post, 24 hours a day, able to greet guests, assist residents and oversee the building’s security.

TheRentersGuide.ca A host of amenities, the building was designed to accommodate the demands of its residents. The Bay Fitness Club is modern and fresh, outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, cardio and aerobics rooms, change rooms with TheRentersGuide.ca 8

The party room is sumptuously finished, with a bar and seating area as well as a catering kitchen. Residents can host fabulous functions in the stylish comfort of The Bay Club. There’s even an outdoor terrace. The screening room and Billiards room are exceptional social options with friends, family and neighbours – there’s so much to enjoy beyond your suite at The Bay Club, it’s more than just a home, it’s a lifestyle. With 292 suites, there are a variety of floorplans, from an efficient junior one-bedroom, one-bedroom and one-plus-den to spacious two-bedroom and two-plus-den layouts to consider. These designer suites feature condo-quality finishes. Laminate wood flooring, granite countertops and generously proportioned rooms create the perfect setting to furnish with great decor. There are six appliances, including in-suite laundry for maximum comfort and function. Large windows and balconies are ideal for taking in the great panoramic views of the Toronto skyline – the cityscape is breathtaking.

oronto is Canada’s largest city and one of the largest in North America. The CN Tower and some of the tallest skyscrapers in the country highlight the city’s skyline. Most of these buildings that make up this impressive scene are located in Toronto’s Financial District on Bay Street. Here, in Toronto’s own version of Wall Street, business people, bankers and execs fill the streets with a briefcase in one hand and a smartphone in the other. For the professional who wants to be close to all of the action, renting is not a problem as there are plenty of luxurious rental buildings located on and around the infamous Bay Street.

TheRentersGuide.ca 10

TheRentersGuide.ca


The Area Towering glass skyscrapers with elaborate entrances and broad sidewalks with heavy walking traffic define the Bay Street area. Bay’s journey starts from Lake Ontario all the way to its terminus at Davenport Road. Located just west of Yonge Street, The Bay Street area features some of Toronto’s finest landmarks such as the Air Canada Centre, City Hall, Nathan Phillips Square, Old City Hall and the University of Toronto. The actual Financial District on Bay Street is located between Front and Queen Street. One can find BCE Place, with its two towers and more than half an acre of commercial and retail space amongst a fabulous light and glass structure, a must see for all. Head a little north to find Canada’s tallest office building, First Canadian Place, the world headquarters of the Bank of Montreal. In fact, all of Canada’s major banks have set up their headquarters in Toronto’s Financial District including all four corners of Bay and King. Across from the banks is the Toronto Stock Exchange, the epicentre of Canada’s financial equity market and the pulse of Toronto’s finances. Shopping Shopping is exquisite for Bay Street TheRentersGuide.ca residents. Head to the top of the street and you’ve arrived at the upscale and elegant district of Yorkville. From Holt Renfrew to Birk’s to Louis Vuitton, the

TheRentersGuide.ca

best of the best locate here at Yorkville. Further south, Bay Street includes its own convenience stores, pharmacies, salons, restaurants and cafés, usually located at the base of taller highrises. Once you get to the Financial District, head below the street to shop at over 1,200 retail stores that are all connected by PATH – 27 kilometers of underground passageways! This underground shopping mecca is convenient during the winter months plus it connects to five different subway stations including Union. Virtually an underground city perfect for renters who commute by subway or on foot. Living on Bay Street Living where much of the country’s money is concentrated means living amongst luxury and the apartment building highrises that are located on, or around Bay Street cater to this premise. Condo-like apartments with hotel-like amenities, that’s what living here is all about. Concierge service, state-ofthe-art fitness rooms, spacious meeting rooms, media rooms, social rooms, business centres, indoor pools, skydecks, underground parking - these are all common amenities that can be found for ‘Bay Street Living.’ Suffice it is to say, that if you want to live close to the money, power and influence of Canada, then Bay Street is where you want to be.

Term vs Permanent

INSURANCE B Y GAI L VAZ -OX LADE

P

eople think insurance is a ripoff and expensive. It doesn’t have to be. Let’s use the example of $300,000 in insurance on a man (since they’re more expensive) who doesn’t smoke. If you were to buy a 20-year term policy, protecting your family from age 25 to 45, the premium would be only $287 a year, or less than $24 a month. Hey, we’re talking a case of beer here. Wait until you’re 39 to buy the same policy and your costs go up to almost $400 a year, which isn’t exactly a budget killer, unless you want a permanent insurance TheRentersGuide.ca policy. Then the difference in the numbers is more significant. Buy a permanent policy at 25 and you’ll pay about $1645 a year or $137 a month. Wait until you’re 39 and the price goes up to $3025 a year or $252 a month. TheRentersGuide.ca 28

So, is term insurance better than permanent (whole life or universal) insurance? Whether you buy“term,”“whole life”or“universal life”insurance will be dependent on two primary factors: the amount of insurance you need, and how long you need that insurance to be in place. Term insurance provides protection for a predetermined period of time (perhaps 5, 10, or 20 years) or until a certain age. However, many term insurance plans end at a specific age, such as 65, 70 or 75. With men and women living considerably past that age, if you’re looking for longer-term protection, term insurance won’t cut it. With term insurance, when the term of the TheRentersGuide.ca contract expires your coverage ends unless you renew the term. Each time the term is renewed,

TheRentersGuide.ca


the premium is adjusted upwards. So on the term policy above for the guy who bought a 20-year term at age 29, if he needed to renew for another ten years, the premium would jump from $304 to $552. Think of term insurance as an expense, like rent. While it will give you comfort and peace of mind, it accumulates no residual value. If you want coverage to last your lifetime or want to use insurance to build assets, term insurance isn’t the right choice. Term insurance is cheaper than permanent insurance, but that’s because the statistics are in favour of the insurance company with term insurance. With permanent insurance the company is going to have to pay out, it’s only a matter of when. Whole life and universal life insurance are permanent, remaining in place until death. With whole life policies, the insurance company does the investing. (People debate that they don’t do a very good job of it, but they are purposely conservative, and with the recent swings in the market, you can see why.) With universal life, you have much more control over the types of investments the money is going into. The premium is generally the same for the life of the policy, so the annual cost can be low if taken early in life (when the risk of death is low), or very high if taken late in life. Most whole life policies have a “reserve,” which can be refunded if you cancel the policy before your death. This reserve is referred to as the cash value of the plan. You can also borrow against this cash value at an interest rate set in the policy. However, if you haven’t paid it back, the money owed will be deducted from the death benefit. So, back to the question,“What kind of insurance should I buy?”The best place to start is with the amount of coverage you need. Let’s say you’ll need $125,000 to pay off your mortgage, $5,000 to cover your funeral expenses, $15,000 to TheRentersGuide.ca cover legal and accounting bills, and an additional $100,000 to cover the capital gains your estate will be hit with. All together, you’ll need about $245,000.

TheRentersGuide.ca

Buying a policy with a lower payout clearly won’t serve your needs. The next thing to look at is how long you’ll need the coverage. Some of your needs may be short-term. Declining term insurance is often the most cost-effective way to cover mortgage debt. On the other hand, the need to meet your funeral expenses and minimize the tax hit on your estate is permanent. So permanent insurance will be your best bet here. Remember, since the premium on your permanent insurance will remain the same, while the premium on term insurance will rise each time the policy is renewed, the cost of term insurance will appear far less expensive in the early years of a policy. Compare the lifetime cost of both types of policies (remember to compare similar features and benefits – apples and apples), and then make your decision. Another interesting fact: with some policies, you can buy the right to convert your term policy to a whole life policy at a later date. So if you decide to start off with term insurance to protect your young family, and then decide to convert to a whole life policy when your needs

change and you have more money, your health won’t be a factor in setting the premiums. However, your age will be and the older you are the more your insurance will cost. Shop around when looking for life insurance. Get several quotes, make sure you’re comparing apples with apples, and buy the policy that best meets your needs. Resist the urge to over-buy, but don’t sell yourself, and your family, short either. Evaluate your future earning potential and your family’s ongoing needs realistically, take inflation into account, and then buy enough insurance to meet your needs.

Paint Your Apartment

How to

BY JANE HERMAN

N

othing gives a room a lift like a fresh coat of paint. And changing the colour is the easiest decorating touch in the world. But painting your apartment – even just one

room – is a lot more work than you might imagine. So look into it carefully before you attempt it.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca 42


If you’re contemplating painting your apartment, speak to your landlord first to find out what the company policy is regarding painting, especially if you have a vibrant colour in mind. Many property managers have a schedule for painting their units and yours could be due. Most companies paint all the rooms in a standard neutral colour like an off white, which makes it easier to maintain as well as re-rent. The key to any successful painting project is preparation: Move any furniture in the room away from the walls and cover the floors and all the remaining furniture with plastic or drop cloths. Next, remove any pictures, mirrors, window treatments and electrical light switch plates. Loosen the ceiling plates of hanging light fixtures and cover them as well. Use a mild soap and water solution to wash any surfaces that are soiled or may have an oily residue from hands or cooking. Mask any surfaces not to be painted such as door handles with non-sticky painter’s tape. Clean the baseboards and tape them as well, overlapping the drop cloth. Spot prime any surface markings with a good primer to prevent the stains or marks from bleeding through the finish coat. Sand any rough surfaces with fine sandpaper and remove any sanding dust with a vacuum and damp cloth. Examine wall, ceiling and trim surfaces for nail holes, cracks or other imperfections. Fill the holes with spackling compound and wipe the spatula over the area until smooth. Priming is an important step that many amateur painters think they can forego. Priming helps improve adhesion of the final colour, block flaws and give the finished colour a uniform appearance and maximum sheen – in short, a professional look. The type of primer you’ll need depends on what was on the wall before you start, as well as the colour you want to put on the wall. Painting a lighter colour over a darker one requires a good priming. If you’re painting a dark or vibrant colour over white using a tinted primer can save you coats of paint. Check with your paint dealer to make sure you purchase the right type of primer for your room. It is common to use a gloss or semi gloss for doors and trim, an eggshell or matte for the walls and the least reflective type of paint for the ceiling. Matte paints are more forgiving of flaws on the wall while the higher the gloss the easier it is to clean and wipe down. If you are painting the entire room start with the ceiling and then paint the walls. Begin at a corner of the room, using a two to two-and-a-half inch angled brush and TheRentersGuide.ca apply a three-inch strip of coating along the perimeter where the wall and ceiling meet. If you’re not comfortable

with this technique, tape the edge with painter’s tape to achieve a perfect line. Do one section of the ceiling at a time. Use a roller to fill in the interior of the ceiling. Pour paint into a tray and slowly roll the roller back and forth to remove excess paint. Roll the width of the ceiling rather than the length. An extension pole will help you reach the ceiling comfortably Using the same technique, paint the walls along the baseboard and around the door and window trim, one wall at a time. Use a two-inch sash brush to paint the window sash, then the rails. Be careful to avoid painting the sash tracks. Leave the sash open until the paint has fully dried, removing any paint from your window panes with a taped razor blade (be careful not to scratch the glass). Fill in the walls will a roller, rolling the paint in a W pattern, and then spreading the paint to fill in. Roll from floor to ceiling to blend and finish each section. Work in small sections so that the paint doesn’t begin to dry before you can fill in the section. Let the first coat dry and then check to see if you need a second coat. Let the walls dry for 24 hours before painting the trim. Apply painter’s tape to the edge of the wall to ensure a clean job. If you make a mistake you can remove the wet paint with a damp rag before it has time to dry. Once you’ve finished painting, you’ll need to clean up, and dispose of any leftover paint. Clean brushes with solvent, squeezing out as much paint and solvent as possible. Rinse the brushes in solvent, then wash in soapy water. Rinse and let dry. Wrap and store in heavy paper. Disassemble the roller and submerge in solvent. When most of the paint has been removed, wash with soap and rinse thoroughly. (If you have used latex paint, substitute soapy water for solvent). You may want to save a small amount of paint for touch-ups. Close the can, mark with masking tape and store under your kitchen sink or in your storage locker. Used paint never gets discarded in the trash or poured down the drain, ensure you dispose of it properly. Your neighbourhood paint dealer can also be of a great deal of assistance and may have some great suggestions. Good luck!

quicktips

Making Your Place Your Own by PAUL SEMKULEY

you can inject colour and create whatever and however you want, using your furniture, artwork, accessories and rugs. These all are an opportunity to mix pattern, colour and styles, harmonizing a beautiful and unique space. As you begin the decorating process, start by establishing the sofa and area rug. The sofa should be proportionate to the room. A clean, sleek shape with narrow arms suits a small room, and doesn’t waste space. I like to use a neutral fabric – something that will wear well and anchor the room. Accessorizing with patterned and solid pillows in a complementary colour scheme is sure to bring excitement to the sofa and space. Area rugs can also be your beginning point of reference for your living area, especially if there is a particular pattern and colour that you are fond of. I prefer the use of rugs over carpets, as they come in various sizes, colours and designs, but they also allow you to show the surrounding flooring.

I am sure most of us have fond memories of living at home with our parents, and saying, “I can’t wait to get my own place so I can decorate it the way I want to,” after being grounded for painting the walls a horrid colour to our parents’ dismay. We couldn’t wait to get out into the real world and do it “our” way. “Its only paint,” we’d retort, but this somehow never appeased them. Some of us were fortunate to move out sooner than others, usually to university or college, but it still meant we were living in strict policy – dorms (where at the fraternity or sorority houses, anything goes) or a cheap rental – a room in someone’s home or a shared accommodation where painting just wasn’t a option. So, we let the walls be neutral and focused instead on the TheRentersGuide.ca furniture. Interestingly enough, in today’s decorating world having neutral walls can actually be the right thing to do, especially for those afraid of making a colour TheRentersGuide.ca commitment. Think of your home as a blank canvas, and 48

The same thought process should also be used within other areas of your space: beds and nightstands need to be proportionate to one another and within the bedroom, the scale of lamps to the size of the table and room. The same goes for dining spaces. However, as more apartments and lofts offer a more casual setting, you may forgo the dining table and chairs, and simply use stools at the kitchen counter, which you allow you to have more “living” space. Once these key elements have been found, the rest of the decorating will fall into place. It can be taken to an eclectic mix of aesthetics and styles, or a very mimimalist, monochromatic, sleek and chic point of view. Whatever you choose, it will truly be yours… Finally!

How to prepare

for the unexpected when moving BY CHUCK RESNICK

M

oving your worldly possessions involves a lot of organization, and if there’s one thing professional movers understand, it’s to expect the unexpected. In fact, that’s a major reason why many people choose to hand over the task of moving to companies that do this every day. Some do-it-yourself moves go well; others end up unnecessarily stressful because those completing the work don’t anticipate potential glitches. Checklists are great, but every single move is different – and nothing beats experience for transferring household goods quickly, safely and efficiently.

For example, if you move in the winter and it’s a snowy, slushy day, how do you protect the floors from water/salt damage at both ends? What about getting large items around hard-to-maneuver corners without marking walls? What if someone gets hurt? Do you know how to pack delicate items like lamp shades and glassware to eliminate shifting and potential breakage during a long haul? What if the truck breaks down or gets into an accident halfway to your new home? Professional movers have resources to draw upon to anticipate and handle any number of unexpected happenings. Training is a great preventative measure – when you shop for a mover, find out if and how the drivers and moving people are trained. Ask whether they have a “Plan B” in case of vehicle problems, and what you can do to be as prepared as possible when the packing/moving begins. As tempting as a DIY move may be, think through the consequences. Are you prepared to deal with the possibility of friends or family members not showing up on moving day due to illness or hurting themselves trying to move heavy items? Do you have a back-up plan for extra items in case you misjudge the size of moving vehicle you need? What about plants? Hazardous liquids?

All of these considerations and more are covered in the training that Two Men and a Truck franchisees take part in at what we call “Stick Men University” (in honour of the company logo). Among the many things they learn is how to maneuver, wrap, pack and load items ranging from big-screen televisions to china cabinets filled with breakables. If you do decide to move yourself, on the Two Men and a Truck website we provide moving tips, a moving checklist and even special things to consider for extremely large items. Give some thought to what might happen along the way and make contingency plans. And be realistic – hiring a professional mover can offer tremendous peace of mind and is money well spent.

Of course, there are specialty items that require an unusual level of care – pianos, pool tables, grandfather clocks, artwork, antiques and the like. The money you think you’ll save by not hiring a professional mover may end up being spent on repairs if these large and valuable pieces are not handled correctly. Worse yet, TheRentersGuide.ca irreplaceable items may be lost forever. And have you thought through unpacking at the other end? On your first night there, you will need bedding, toiletries, towels and some kitchen items. Do you have a plan that includes being able to find those things easily and quickly?

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION Do you have a spare bedroom, den or a basement that can be used for this purpose? “You need quiet, especially if you telecommute. A high-traffic area doesn’t really work,” says Adam Shearer, president of California Closets. In smaller spaces, families must be creative. A spare bedroom can have options for a home office, says Enrico Terisigni, general manager of Organized Interiors. The company even offers a wall bed home office system. It has a double- or a queen-sized bed that pulls down from wall when needed – with space for pillows and clothing. “When the bed is not needed, it goes back up against the wall, and there’s room for a home office, as well as files and secret documents,” he says. Organized Interiors even has an “office in a closet” solution that is very popular. FULLY EQUIPPED AND DESIGNED FOR YOUR FAMILY Once you’ve decided where your office will go, think about what will be needed in it. Shearer says that most offices include lower or base cabinetry that could house file drawers, a work surface or countertop, and upper storage. Seating is also very important. Having enough legroom is key. “We recommend a minimum of 30 inches under that countertop for someone to sit and work.” Don’t forget about the little details about the unique people who are going to use the office. Are the people who use it right or left handed? Is the chair at the right height and ergonomic? Is there adequate light at each workspace? Some people may want to combine the home office with a home craft centre if someone in the family is artistic or wraps a lot of gifts. Remember technological concerns such as power. Are there enough electrical outlets and are they where they need to be so that everyone can plug in their computers? If you need help planning your home office, companies such as California Closets and Organized Interiors can send a designer to evaluate your space and create a customized solution for your family. THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN Safety is paramount. If kids are going to be using the space, is it childproofed for them? Where should the wee ones sit? A child-sized desk or table is great for little ones to colour or do their homework while you work. Having art supplies and toys at their level also promotes creativity and keeps them occupied. SHARING A WORKSPACE How do you make the home office work so that people can work together at the same time? “Ideally, it needs to be laid out so there are areas for everyone to sit,” says Shearer. “If you don’t have enough room, you are going to have to trade off.”

TheRentersGuide.ca

Professional organizer Hellen Buttigieg, owner of We Organize U says that “face to face” desks – like for detectives in the movies – “are great for family members that enjoy the

TheRentersGuide.ca

interaction while they work.” If this is too distracting for some people, desks can be placed in each corner of the room. “Keep in mind that each person has their own way of working, and it’s important to set up a space that takes that into consideration,” adds Buttigieg. Sharing some things can make life a lot easier, such as office supplies, and a printer/scanner/copier, says Buttigieg. Shearer suggests a cabinet or file drawer for each family member. Each parent has a drawer for their bills, each child has a drawer for their artwork. Alternatively colour-coded files for each family member can work. Functionality aside, there is the human element of sharing and getting along that makes working together a challenge. How can you make working together pleasant? “Boundaries and respect,” says Buttigieg. “Everyone should have their own space carved out, even if it’s a small section of the room. Family members need to respect and not infringe on someone else’s space. That means one person can’t pile their papers on someone else’s desk when their own desk gets TheRentersGuide.ca buried.”

Shopping for

hbVaa heVXZh by LISA CANNING

LIVING IN A SMALL SPACE COMES WITH PRACTICAL

challenges – a lack of storage being the main complaint from my clients. This lack of storage often means that everything is on display – and thus has to count. When I am shopping for my small space dwellers (and by the way, I am one too), I keep a few principles in mind to set them up for success. 01 QUALITY OVER QUANTITY In a small space, you don’t have the luxury to amass a great deal of stuff. Thus, I am pretty rigorous regarding what comes in, and what exits a home. When selecting pieces I always ask – will this improve my client’s quality of life? Will they be more organized because of it? Will it enhance their enjoyment of the space? And once pieces come in, I try my best to ensure other unused things go out.

BE ORGANIZED Professional organizers have taught me that a small space can be maximized with the right organizational tools. In a recent client’s project, we outfitted kitchen shelves with clear, stackable storage bins, which increased the usable space by 40 per cent. To do this, group like items together and then assess the size of bin that you need. Retailers like Solutions and Neat offer diverse products to help increase shelf storage space. 02

IN SMALL SPACES, I PREFER TO LARGE-SCALE ART PIECES AS OPPOSED TO COLLECTIONS OF MULTIPLE FRAMES.

TheRentersGuide.ca USE

TheRentersGuide.ca 82

FUNCTION CAN ALSO LOOK GOOD If you need to purchase a product for purely a utilitarian usage, make sure it looks good. I like the Dyson Air Multiplier. Not only a powerful fan, its slim and sleek design doesn’t take up visual weight – a huge plus when square footage is at a premium. I’m also a big fan of Scandinavian and Japanese designed dishware. Mjölk is a great resource for kitchen accessories that look beautiful as they serve their function.

03

04 MEASURE YOUR VISUAL WEIGHT Overlooking the visual weight of a piece is a large reason I get called in for design consultations. In a TheRentersGuide.ca small space, a large sofa and a large chair will look cluttered and feel cumbersome. The same principle

TheRentersGuide.ca


Go large with art in a small space IMAGE BY TANJA TIZINA-BURDI.

Dyson Air Multiplier is practical & beautiful and takes up little floor space

applies to using several dark, bulky, wooden pieces in close proximity. To lighten a space, pair a large sofa with two smaller chairs and swap out the wooden coffee table for a glass surface. Glass or acrylic pieces can be found in many of my small space projects as they balance out some of the larger pieces in a room. For these more delicate pieces, I love retailers like CB2 and Urban Barn. GO LARGE WITH ART IN A SMALL SPACE In small spaces, I prefer to use large-scale art pieces as opposed to collections of multiple frames. I love the impact that is created by one piece as it can ground the colour scheme of a room and provide a TheRentersGuide.ca stunning focal point. 05

Bringing home

When Grimsby couple Patricia and Frank came to our firm, they asked us

MID-CENTURY MODERN DESIGN

They wanted it to be calm and relaxing,

// BY YANIC SIMARD

yet still have a sophisticated edge to it. I

// PHOTOGRAPHED BY BRANDON BARRE

to design the front den of their home to become a multifunctional getaway where the family of five could relax and hang out, and also use as a makeshift office area when working from home.

then knew right away that this space would host an eclectic mix of furnishings including those inspired by the mid-century modern era.

TheRentersGuide.ca MID-CENTURY MODERN: a period which began mid 1940s and continued to the mid 1960s, was all about simplicity, clean lines, organic lines and of course quality construction. It was design ahead of its time and remains classic to this day. TheRentersGuide.ca

When my firm Toronto Interior Design Group first came in, the white walls were bare and there was little furniture

TheRentersGuide.ca

in the room. The possibilities were

endless, as the clients allowed us to really let our imagination run wild with

TheRentersGuide.ca 94


this project and trusted us completely with whatever we wanted to do. The first task was determining the floor plan and flow of the space. After trying several different configurations on paper, we decided to incorporate a small sofa, desk and two lounge chairs, which could be used for either working at the desk area or moved toward the sofa for a conversation area – perfect for the purpose they wanted the room to serve. After the homeowners fell in love with the floor plan, it was time to create a design they would fall in love with too. Our starting point in terms of the design was painting the walls in Benjamin Moore’s OC-23 Classic Gray (my go-to shade) and then coming up with this unique feature wall which is a combination of alternating mirror slabs and grass cloth wallpaper installed on MDF – this adds instant drama to the room while still remaining quite subtle. We then moved on to sourcing the furniture; we decided to go with a custom sofa, floating glass top desk and two of my favourite beautiful mid-century inspired Brno chairs, which we re-covered in a luxurious velvet for a more personalized look. The small space room was really beginning to take shape. Fast forwarding to the finishing touches, we brought in a mix of chrome and brass, which really balanced out the entire look, while also adding the edge and sophistication that Patricia and Frank longed for. For a hint of exotic, a natural brown cowhide rug hugs the floor, while extremely textural horse sculptures linger in the background near the retro looking walnut lamp. But the element that we all felt really brought life to the room was this amazing art piece by world photographer Tony Koukos. However, the real key component that tied this space together takes me back to the beginning of this article – the mid-century items. The beauty of them, which you can notice from looking at this space, is that they would work well in any setting effortlessly, while always remaining timeless. These pieces are such a great way in connecting the old world with the new and in adding a touch of elegance to any interior. My job at this residence was done when the homeowners told me they absolutely loved their new den and that they have been using the space every day – another happy client, which keeps me motivated to continue doing what I’m doing. For help with your interior design project, visit tidg.ca and fill out a client information form. We look forward to hearing from you!

Creating the iconic mid-century look

› Incorporate a sunburst – weather in a mirror or clock, this design is a staple for this period › The use of a neutral wall colour – to let the splendor of the furniture speak for itself › Mixing of materials such as glass, wood and metal

Influential Designers of the Mid Century Period › Henry Miller

› Ray and Charles Eames › Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

quicktips

10 WAYS TO REDUCE

your tax bill For individuals

1. Plan ahead – Make sure to gather your receipts and NETFILE code, register for My Account, and sign up for direct deposit before April 30. Submitting your income tax and benefit return before the tax-filing deadline means you can avoid having to pay late-filing penalties. 2. Tax-free savings account – A tax-free savings account (TFSA) is one great way to save money, since you don’t pay tax on any income you earn from investments in your TFSA. 3. Registered retirement savings plan – Any income you earn in a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) is exempt from tax, as long as the funds stay in the plan. RRSPs help you save for your retirement and get a break at tax time too. 4. Public transit tax credit – If you or someone in your family is a regular user of public transit then you may be able to claim a non-refundable tax credit based on the cost of eligible transit passes.

T

he holiday decorations are all packed away, the New Year’s resolutions made, and spring is around the corner. Before you know it, tax season will be here. Before you start filing your taxes, here TheRentersGuide.ca are 10 ways that may help you reduce your tax bill and may even land you a refund. TheRentersGuide.ca

5. Pension income splitting – If you are receiving income from a pension, you can split up to 50 per cent of eligible pension income with your spouse or common-law partner to reduce the taxes you pay. 6. Students – Are you still in school? Students can claim the tuition, education, and textbook amounts. Have you graduated recently? You may be eligible to claim the interest you paid on your student loans. 7. Child care expenses – For those who have children, you may be able to claim child care expenses that you or your spouse or common-law partner paid so that either of you could work, do research, or go to school. 8.

ADDING COLOUR TO YOUR HOME IS LIKE WATCHING a

black and white movie remade into a colour film - it’s as though someone turned on the lights and gave it new life. It energizes the scene, it presents new details hidden by shadow and adds a sense of personality otherwise ignored through shade. Let’s turn on the colour in your space and give it a new life as well. People tend to be nervous when it comes to decorating TheRentersGuide.ca with colour. It’s safe and easy to choose a neutral but it’s fun and exciting to play with colour. When we hear a client tell us that they love colour and want to see it incorporated into their space, it’s like music to a designer’s ears. It means we can infuse the room with fresh hues, dramatic contrast TheRentersGuide.ca and an exuberance of personality.

118

Most fear arises from doubt - what kind colours to use, how to use colour in appropriate doses, and what if you use too much colour? The tone-on-tone colour combination is the simplest to work with. It means taking a colour and developing a layered effect by using the same colour in different variations. However, if you are ready to play with your space and inject an exciting colour palette, then work TheRentersGuide.ca with whatever colour speaks to you. If it’s complementary tones you are comfortable with then know that red is

to green as blue is to orange and yellow to violet - they are called complementary colours because they are each other’s opposite on the colour wheel, and as we all know - opposites attract! Using complementary influences will allow your primary colour to pop and make a sticking statement. One of the first questions we are asked by clients is how to use colour. Is buying a red sectional a good investment? It all depends on the space but when it comes to large-scale and investment pieces, we like to suggest keeping those neutral to ensure longevity. Nonetheless, you can always allow colour to become the star of the show by incorporating it into other focal features. Playing with large- and small-scale pattern through fabrics, wallpaper, art and even the rug can give you a powerful and impressive impact in your space. If you integrate colour through smaller objects it’s also a great way to ensure you won’t get sick of it, especially if you are the type of person to lose interest frequently. Erase your fear and get started. There’s no reason why we can’t all introduce a little more colour into our homes and lives. Start off small if you are more conservative but if you’re channeling the rebel in you then break the neutral mold and create your own wow-factor!

GREEN APARTMENT

SHOPPING

How to find a building with an environmentally responsible property manager B Y TE D WHI T EHEAD Over the past few years, protecting the environment has attracted a phenomenal amount of media coverage and concern across industries, including the multi-residential apartment industry. There is a continually growing trend in Ontario amongst both property managers and tenants to become more eco-friendly in their day-to-day living, and this focused attention to environmental responsibility is very refreshing. The property manager is responsible for nurturing this shared mindset in the building – and environmentally conscientious apartment shoppers can ask specific questions to find out just how “Green” a building is. For example, ask whether the building manager has a plan in place for promoting energy efficiency and proper waste disposal, and whether they lead by example. When tenants move in, is there any kind of package or document that outlines waste management and recycling procedures in the building? Are there blue box recycling containers in user-friendly areas of the building for tenants’ use? Is the property manager well versed on the environmental programs in place in their municipality? Landlords and property managers should actively promote conservation and energy awareness to staff and tenants as a community initiative, and can inform tenants of special events such as Earth Week and Waste Reduction Week. Water conservation is another area where apartment building owners can make an effort. If it is time to replace TheRentersGuide.ca appliances in the apartment kitchens or washers and dryers in laundry rooms, consider Energy Star rated choices that use far less energy. Low-water capacity flush toilets and water-saving showerheads are examples of fixtures to turn to when existing units need to be replaced. TheRentersGuide.ca 122

Most apartment tenants are happy to comply with waste disposal practices, as long as they know what is expected of them. Again, in a building that is run in a professional manner, this kind of information is generally provided upon move-in. Property managers and landlords should let tenants know what constitutes refuse and disposal items that can be placed in the wheeled carts or front-end containers that are emptied regularly by the municipality. When you consider how many people live and work in apartment buildings, the potential to take steps individually and collectively toward Green practices can have a substantial impact on reducing the carbon footprint of the buildings. A simple small thing, like switching off all the lights in your apartment home every time you leave it can have a big impact. As you search for the perfect building, keep the colour Green in mind and ask questions before you make your move. For more information on how to enhance the quality of life in apartment buildings, visit www.frpo.org, the site of the Federation of Rental-Housing Providers of Ontario, and www.crbprogram.org, where you can learn about the Certified Rental Building Program that can help you find reliable, well-run choices in your area.

LESLIE STYLES, FOODIE & TRAVEL AFICIONADO, SHARES SOME DELICIOUS DISHES FOUND ON HER TRAVELS AROUND THE WORLD.

CLASSIC PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES DIRECTIONS

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars in a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs and mix until combined. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually stir into the batter to blend. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about two to four hours. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2-inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Using the tines of a fork, flatten the balls by making criss-cross marks on top. Bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes or until the bottoms are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. To store, layer the cookies between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container, and cover. Store at room temperature for up to three days or freeze for up to three months. Good luck with that! These disappeared in three days.

a

n all time favourite, these old fashioned peanut butter cookies, with their classic criss-cross imprint on top, are absolutely irresistible. These are one of the cookies that my Mom used to make when I was very small and still holds a special place in my heart, and now in my husband’s tummy!

INGREDIENTS Makes about 36 cookies

›TheRentersGuide.ca 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

› 1 tsp baking powder

› 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth

› 1/2 tsp salt

› 1 cup white sugar

› 1 1/2 tsp baking soda

› 1 cup packed brown sugar › 2 large eggs ›TheRentersGuide.ca 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Giving kids A FINANCIAL HEAD-START

E

xperts estimate that it costs close to $200,000 to raise a child from birth to age 18, not counting post-secondary education. So when a new child joins a family, parents and grand-parents tend to think about starting an education fund like a Registered Education Savings Plan. While this is a very practical way to help the child get a head-start in life, it’s a tactic that’s limited to their education years. To find out if there are other long-term options to help get kids on the right financial path into their adulthood, we checked in with the life insurance experts from Desjardins Insurance for their advice: What would you suggest as another long-term savings product for children? One option is a life insurance policy for the child that is purchased by the parents, grand-parents or another friend or family member. The child will then be protected for his entire life and can take advantage of an added savings component that is tax exempt.

TheRentersGuide.ca

Your suggestion of a life insurance for a child is very unusual— Yes, that’s true. However, it’s the built-in savings component, not necessarily the death benefit that makes this an attractive solution. TheRentersGuide.ca

How does it work? The insurance policy is purchased by the parents, grand-parent or another friend or family member on behalf of the child. The insurance premium is determined by the child’s age, health and other details. This amount remains level over a set number of years and never increases. Part of the premiums accumulate in a separate, tax-sheltered account and over time a portion of the cash value can be used to pay the policy premiums. What happens when they’ve grown up? When the child reaches the age of majority, the policy ownership can be transferred to them and continues to protect them for life. At this point, all the premiums may have been paid. What’s great about this insurance is that it provides the child with a head-start on life. For example, the policy can be used as collateral when applying for a loan. Also, the child may have the option of purchasing more insurance without a medical review. This is called a Guaranteed Insurability Benefit. Can they access the cash value? Yes, as the child grew so did the cash value. It’s accessible at any time and is subject to the available amount. The child can use it towards postsecondary education, travel, as an emergency fund or as a down payment on a home. Where can I find more information about the benefits of this type of insurance? TheRentersGuide.ca Speak to your life insurance representative or financial advisor who can offer you tips that best suit your situation.

Reducing

starts with reusing

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simple enough, but worth remembering. When you leave the house, bring a refillable container for water or coffee. Going shopping? Bring reusable bags, and look for items with less packaging.

Think more, about using less.
